That Movie About a House with a Clock In one of Them Walls

Postby Ribbons on Mon Jul 09, 2018 11:03 pm

I recently saw a preview for a whimsical children's fantasy called The House With a Clock in Its Walls, directed by torture-porn auteur Eli Roth(!?).



Needless to say, I'm very confused by the whole thing. But it doesn't look completely terrible(!?). I'm predicting now that it's going to be a John Carter/Lone Ranger affair that bombs at the box office but that I kind of like nonetheless.

Great.
Another film for Peven to berate everyone for not liking.

Man, I loved John Bellairs' books as a kid. It's good to see some of his work finally get a film adaptation.

So I saw the Clock-Wall-House-Thing and unsurprisingly really enjoyed it. It's nothing earth-shatteringly new but it's solid, really well-made, with a fair amount of fun and stylistic flourishes that help it stand out from the pack. Also, it fills a niche that I don't think gets much attention: a kids' movie that doesn't insult the intelligence of older kids. I don't know if this film will be remembered as a failure -- or if it'll even be remembered at all -- but I hope if you've got 10-12 year-olds you'll consider showing them this.
